A deadly pedestrian-auto collision occurred when an onrushing car struck and killed a man as he walked across Highway 68.
The wreck took place near the intersection of Aurora and Highway 68. According to witnesses, the victim’s family, and the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, the victim went for an afternoon walk, and as he crossed the highway, he stepped into the path of a driver on the road, who was eastbound. The driver says that although he saw the pedestrian, he was unable to stop, and the car struck the victim. Both people were rushed to a local hospital, where the pedestrian was subsequently pronounced dead.
The victim may have been wearing headphones at or near the time of the pedestrian-auto collision.
